Valve Introduces Flexible Pricing for Steam

Have you been meaning to complete a specific bundle of games in your Steam library but you don't want to purchase a bundle, simply because you'd...

    A while back I noticed that the Valve Complete Pack, a collection of some of the most popular games produced by Valve, was on sale in the Steam market. The only thing that stopped me from purchasing it was the fact that I already owned a few games in the bundle individually, so I felt like I was over paying. I'm sure some of you have also experienced something like this but fret not, as Valve have once again saved the day.

    Valve have made it so that if you are looking into purchasing a bundle of games and you happen to already own a few games in that bundle, instead of paying full price you will be able to purchase the bundle at a discount. This then terminates the flat fee associated with bundles so that you can "complete" the bundle without purchasing the same game multiple times, which in turn saves you lots of money.


    An example of the new system can be viewed by checking out the Steam page for the Valve Complete Pack. In my personal case, the Valve Complete Pack will currently cost me $84.61 CAD because I already own CS:GO and L4D2. It's not known yet if this same system is enabled for other packs on the Steam Market as of now, but after taking a quick look around, it seems as if this system is enabled for most Valve games. Unfortunately I couldn't check for other games.
    What do you think? Is this new sales system something you've been dying for? Leave your thoughts below!

    Just to clarify apparently publishers have to opt in and implement this, thus isn't default for every bundle.

      Hmm, this does help out for those really good companies but with the state of the market today, it'll probably be quite rare.

    I wish more companies would do this... I've had to over pay quite a few times.

    Finally, the price of high tier items can go up in price again... hopefully.

      This doesn't affect the marketplace?

    This is awesome :biggrin:

    I have been in the same predicament of passing on bundles because they include one or more games I already own.
